CAIRO, GA (WALB) -
GBI agents and Cairo Police are investigating a shooting that left three men dead.
 
Officials were called to a home at 1019 8th Avenue NE in Cairo around 7:30pm Saturday night.
 
Agents say 38 year-old Jacinto Olguin, 57 year-old Jose Reyes Beltran and 39 year-old Aliro Ramirez died from apparent gunshot wounds.  Agents believe one of the men shot the other two, then turned the gun on himself.   Agents aren't saying who pulled the trigger yet, but they did recover the murder weapon, which was a handgun.

"It's definitely a shock to the community because most of these people, the Mexicans here they are very gentle people. They are very friendly people. They are good people in general," says friend Al Rocuant.

Jose Reyes Beltran and Aliro Ramirez died at the scene.  Jacinto Olguin died at Grady General Hospital.  
 
Autopsies are scheduled for Monday.  Agents say they don't have a motive at this time.
